Falco is a veteran character returning in Super Smash Bros. Rumble. He retains many aspects from his previous incarnation, though he has been de-cloned and heavily buffed. He was one of the characters shown in the reveal trailer. This is his fourth appearance in a Super Smash Bros. game (excluding Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS).
